stolen-passport-fastport-passportIf your passport is lost or stolen, it can be a devastating experience. When your passport is lost or stolen, you must report it to the U.S. Department of State right away. The easiest way to do that is by submitting the DS-64 Passport Form. American citizens can not usually have more than one passport. When you’re applying for a replacement passport, you need to let the U.S. Dept of State know why you are unable to submit your old passport (as you would do during a renewal passport application). The DS-64 Passport Form provides the Passport Agency with the information necessary for them to know the circumstances surrounding your lost or stolen passport.

 

What happens if I found my lost passport?

Finding your lost passport after it has been reported as lost means the old passport is considered invalid. That’s right. If you report your passport as lost or stolen, the passport is invalidated and cannot be renewed. You will need to apply for a brand new passport. If you try to use a passport that has been invalidated due to the DS-64 Passport Form, you may be detained.

 

How do I submit the DS-64 passport form?

If you are applying for a new U.S. passport book and/or card, please submit this form with a new DS-11 U.S. passport application to any designated acceptance facility, U.S. passport agency, U.S. embassy, or U.S. consulate abroad.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

A U.S. citizen may not normally bear more than one valid or potentially valid U.S. passport book and one valid U.S. passport card at a time. It therefore is necessary to submit a statement with an application for a new U.S. passport when a previously issued valid or potentially valid U.S. passport book/card cannot be presented. Your statement must detail why the previous U.S. passport book/card cannot be presented. The information you provide on the DS-64, “Statement Regarding a Lost or Stolen U.S. Passport Book and/or Card”, will be placed into our Consular Lost and Stolen Passport System. This system is designed to prevent the misuse of your lost or stolen U.S. passport book/card. Anyone using a U.S. passport book/card reported on the DS-64, including yourself, may be detained upon entry into the United States. Should you locate the reported lost or stolen U.S. passport at a later time, submit it for cancellation to the Consular Lost and Stolen Unit. It has been invalidated. You may not use that U.S. passport for travel. See page one of this form for additional information.

Please select the document (or documents) which you are reporting and their status.
